Retired Adm. Paul Zukunft said in an interview with Politico Thursday that Trump’s record shows he is unfit for office. 

"I've seen an insurgency, if you will, on our constitutional rights and more power being centralized at the executive level that has really divided our nation,” said Zukunft, who stepped down from his commanding role in June 2018. 

As part of his reasoning to support Biden, Zukunft also cited the 2019 government shutdown, which left the Coast Guard’s more than 40,000 active-duty members without pay for months. He also voiced concerns about Trump’s hesitancy to accept scientific reports on the coronavirus pandemic and the effects of climate change.
